Poole’s untimely and tragic demise brings Humphrey Goodman to the beautiful island of Saint Marie as the new Detective Inspector. But while he enthusiastically embraces Caribbean life, his new team of Camille, Dwayne and Fidel quickly realise they’ve got another eccentric and rather frustrating Englishman on their hands… Humphrey’s apparently random and disorganised approach to solving crime initially seems confounding, but it’s not long before they realise they have a remarkable detective in their midst – one capable of solving his predecessor’s own baffling murder – and together the team go on to brilliantly solve a host of dizzyingly mystifying murders, from zombie film stand-ins, to glamorous stewardesses and local politicians.
In the series opener we meet Nancy Botwin, a recently widowed suburban soccer mom who’s dealing pot to make ends meet; Nancy flips out when she discovers Josh, one of her competitors, is dealing to 10 year-olds at her youngest son’s school, but she soon discovers a bigger skeleton in Josh’s closet; Nancy is stunned when Quinn, her rival Celia’s 15 year old daughter, asks her permission to have sex with her 15 year old son, Silas; Celia thinks her Nanny-Cam is the perfect solution to keep the kids celibate, but she ends up seeing much more than she bargained for.
Fran has had a pen pal named Lenny since the first grade. Fran and Lenny, through their letters, get along famously, almost like boyfriend/girlfriend. They agreed early on never to exchange photographs, but Lenny, coming to New York, wants to meet Fran in person. Maxwell is anxious to meet Lenny as he feels he’s in competition with Lenny. Fran, on the other hand, is nervous to meet Lenny as she has exaggerated who “Fran Fine” is in her letters. But Fran agrees to meet Lenny at the Russian Tea Room, each identifying the other by the red rose worn on their lapels. Again, Maxwell is anxious to see Lenny, and accompanies Fran to the Russian Tea Room and stays with her until Lenny shows up. Fran and Maxwell are having a nice enough “date” of their own while they wait for Lenny, so nice that Fran almost doesn’t care if Lenny shows up or not.
Besides a love for hoops, it would seem that Lucas and Nathan are two young men with little in common – except for the dark secret that they share the same father.

But their lives collide when a twist of fate puts Lucas on Nathan’s team. The rumor that’s haunted the boys since childhood now becomes more than just whispers as the half-brothers compete not only for control of the court, but also for the heart of Nathan’s girlfriend. So unfolds a deep and bitter conflict that’s been years in the making; one that will play itself out in their homes, their hearts and at school as they struggle to come to terms with who they really are – and the fact that they may have more in common than they ever imagined
